We booked for bed, breakfast and evening meal and were impressed. The views of Windermere are stunning. The room was spacious and clean. The evening meal was lovely and the staff attentive.The 'Full English' breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day.

The Miller Howe sets its offering of food a cut above the normal"fine dining" establishments. Don't expect roast beef and two veg. This is a culinary experience. The starter we chose was belly pork. Completely not what you would expect arrived. It was piquant, with...More

If the Lakes are the jewel in the crown of Britain’s countryside then Miller Howe must be the Queen. Why? Because this restaurant is wearing that jewel well. With the most stunning views possible over the beautifully English Lake Windermere, you probably wouldn’t notice if you were sat on a polyester sofa and served up a Kwiksave ready meal. However, take your eyes off the windows for just a moment and you’ll notice that the surroundings are comfortable, good looking and with somehow more than a little taste of Italy. Although A La Carte options are available, most diners will delight in the Set Menu which boasts the very finest dishes using quality British ingredients.
